Some plans fell through and I'm currently cooling my heels in Cardiff until I fly to Dublin on Wednesday. We're on a shoestring budget and relying entirely on public transport and either hostels or campgrounds.
I'd like to see the Brecon Beacons but the logistics are proving a bit complex. I know there used to be a bus running from Cardiff to the Storey Arms stop, making a day trip to Pen y Fan possible, but I can't seem to find out if that's still in operation. Is there any way to climb the mountain and get back to Cardiff in a day? Failing that, are there any campsites within the Brecon Beacons which are accessible (at least primarily) via public transport? Failing both of those things, any suggestions on what I can do using only public transport and hostels/camping for the next few nights? I'd like to see some of Wales' natural beauty. Suggestions on trips within the Brecon Beacons are appeciated as well.
Sorry my questions are a bit vague. Thanks for any help you can provide!Edited: 2:02 pm, June 13, 2014
